so what are you debts please

and are you looking at any shortfall.

shame you didn't come here for advice on the VR, we might have been able to minimise your loss or even stop you having to VR, that's never a good idea.

So, we have ;

£14k on credit cards (Capital One, Barclaycard, Fluid)

£4.5k catalogues

£200 EON-not current provider

£600 Coop energy-not current provider

£1100 for the PPI claim company fee (the payout I never received-so would dispute this 'fee')

£200-misc (a training provider and insurance 'cancellation fee')

£4.5k- mortgage shortfall (property is now sold and we have a letter to state that this is the shortfall-it was a shared ownership property)

 

We have had very poor advice over the past year or so. Only now am I realising that the person we had trusted as a 'debt solutions advisor' and took about £700 of our money, was in fact a fraud-targeting vulnerable, desperate people, that have reached rock bottom.

 

Like I said in my previous post, I take full responsibility for the mess we are in, but am just desperately trying to find the best solution now.

 

Thanks

Lyndsey

theres no debt there that requires you to go BK.

aw you really appear to have had terrible advice

you really should have kept us upto date last year

seems like all of it even the repo could have been avoided.

 

there is seriously nothing anyone that owns any of those debts can actually do to you esp the old util bills

and some spoofing PPI reclaim company!!

 

oh and name and shame please!!

It is becoming evident now that we really have had appalling advice and paid £700 for the pleasure. I'm on a mission now to bring this fraudster down, stop him from preying on vulnerable people in the future. Could name and shame him also but would have to be in a private msg.....for now at least.

 

We've had a few creditors contact since our IVA failed in December, but nowhere near all. And even some of the larger debts haven't been in contact yet.

 

The PPI claim company was.....wait for it...….Claims Advisory Group! They did negotiate a claim of about £3k from one of our previous accounts BUT the claim was never paid out (even though we were in the IVA at the time, we got statements from them that showed they had never received the payment).

 

So, do we just deal with every letter/debt as it comes along, try to do f&f settlements, would that work for the newly acquired mortgage shortfall too, because it hasn't been 'sold on' yet, would they still accept less? Many of the creditors don't have our new address, the correspondence we have been receiving has come through redirected mail. We wouldn't want them tracking us down and calling at our new address.

 

Thanks

doesn't matter if they do 

a DCA are NOT BAILIFFS!!

wise up!

 

now are all your debt still with the original lenders or have they ben sold on to fleecing powerless DCA's

I wouldnt really worry about any of them.

VERY little they can do

and even if they try for a CCJ, you've no assets anyway.

 

don't hide

its the worst thing you can do.

get on voters

look at your credit file

and WRITE to the owners of any debt that shows and or any other debt that doesn't show that you last paid within 6yrs with your correct address

that's all you've got to do

 

then you PROTECT against backdoor CCJ's you cant defend or know about.

don't 100% believe post redirect guarantees you getting anything with a court stamp on it..it DOESNT we've seen this time and time again.

 

ps not sure if its here already. but roughly when did you stop payments?

and are any of your debts on CRA files defaulted

if so whats the date.

maybe expand your list a wee bit with more info?

I can only echo the above advice from experience, all you need to do is keep creditors informed in writing of your current address. 

 

Forget F&F payments, you will be wasting your money, forget bankrupcy, do not talk to anyone on the phone, everything in writing.

 

Your priority now is to pay rent, council tax, heat , food and transport. Do not pay any of your creditors!

Thanks for the replies.

 

So don't part with any money? Not even token payments? What will happen if we just don't pay?

 

I appreciate what Dx said about DCA's not having power like Bailiffs (when wpuld Bailiffs get involved?) BUT for me it's like saying would I rather be bitten by a crocodile or a dog...a bites a bite...don't want a visit from either. ..🙁

 

A list below of who has the debt;

 

Meriden Investments Ltd- PPI claim fee working for Claims Advisory Group and have chased since IVA failed.

 

Arrow global have the MBNA cc debt and have been in contact since IVA failed.

 

Eversheds Sutherland have one of the smaller cc debts

 

All the capital one accounts (x4) are still with Capital One-they've written the most since IVA failed 

 

PRA Group have 2 catalogue debts and the barclaycard cc-these have stated a f&f settlement would be considered on the catalogue debts. 

 

LCS have the Coop energy debt and currently have me on a 30 days hold on 'action'

 

The Mortgage shortfall-the letter came from a solicitor acting on their behalf and stated I should contact them to arrange payment

 

We stopped paying the IVA in June last year and this failed in December-no payments made since.

 

I can't see any defaults on my credit file on clearscore.

 

Thanks

Really sorry and I say this with the greatest respect but you just haven't listened to anyone here, nobody is going to come and visit you. You are a million miles from there right now. 

 

Everybody can be safely ignored, (however if your Tax Credits Over payment  and council tax are still in arrears this will need to be addressed at some point.). However, every debt with a DCA, just forget about it, aside from letting them know your current address.

 

All token payments that you make are simply restarting the 6 year statute barred clock, that is why you should not make them.  The DCA's can send letters all they want but it doesn't change the fact that they have zero legal powers.

 

Why won't you listen, I have been in far more debt to the same people as you, I listened to the advice on this site and didn't pay one penny, now am nearly in the clear.

Again, thanks for the replies.

 

A little harsh if I'm being honest and not really what I need right now when I'm suffering from anxiety and depression.

Yes you've all been there and come out of the other side BUT it feels very against the grain for me to just ignore them and pls don't forget I come from having a shed load of bad advice...it's not always easy to see the right thing to do at the time

 

I am listening to what is being said, am grateful and will follow advice I just need to ask the questions to be clear in my mind what will happen if....etc.

 

I had VERY threatening letters and conversations  from Jacobs recovery regarding a leisure subscription..very intimidating and they stated that they would visit the property, that's why I mentioned about DCA visits.

Thanks

Yup, being harsh because you need it. Bad advice is coming from the people who want to take your money. Good advice is coming from people on here who just want to help.

 

DCA’s threats to send someone around is idle.

Okay well what is this Jacobs issue? 

Have you checked your Credit Files with all 3 agencies? 

 

Do either of you have any CCJs?

Jacobs acting as dca's IGNORE THEM as gyms don't do court so they cant be acting as bailiffs.

 

if you'd listened and engaged with us last year, even when things got worse, you'd probably still have the home too

but never mind we are where we are now and that's it.

 

so the basic rules again.

 

never ever converse on the phone or EMAIL about ANY DEBT TO ANYONE. you are under NO LEGAL OBLIGATION to do so.

writing only ..PUT THE PHONE DOWN..block and bounce any emails sent and email addresses used

 

never ever converse at your door about ANY DEBT TO ANYONE. you are under NO LEGAL OBLIGATION to do so.

tell them to leave your property and never to return else you'll call police 101.

 

WRITE to everyone...

those debts with DCA's simply state THEIR ref number and your new address THAT IS ALL

 

the debts still with the ORIGINAL CREDITORS i'd be sending this:

it will kill 2 birds

1 give them your correct address

2. puts them on the back foot. they must help you. [even if you are offering £1PCM]

 

that's it really.

when you get any deforestation through your door

come HERE with it and well advise what to do..

and I mean for ANY DEBT..ANY LETTERs

no running off to other sources please!!🤗

Ok, thanks @London1971, I have received my virtual slap!

 

And @dx100uk, I promise, I'll stick with this site now, the conflicting info received from other sources is mind boggling! 

 

@fkofilee, the Jacobs issue is resolved (I ended up calling the automated line and paying it off). No, I have only checked our credit files with clearscore so I will take a look at these tonight- Equifax, Experian and..?

 

So, just to clarify-next step is writing off to everyone to change address (even if they don't appear on our credit files?)-but no offer of token payment for ones with DCAs, only to the ones still with the original creditor? So the statute barr that you spoke of @London1971 only applies to debts with DCAs?

 

Then detail any response/correspondence I get through from any creditor for advice?

 

Thanks

Yup, you really shouldn't have paid Jacobs.  That's money to feed your family or heat your home, given to someone who probably has no legal right to enforce the debt.  

 

You are wasting your money by paying any of these debts, instead of worrying about these idiots sending you idle threats, you should be busy making sure that you can pay the bills that matter like rent and heating.

 

Everyone non essential can go sing for their money.

    • Yes, It is more the apparent contradiction really. The legislation seems to say that she can still cancel but wil be billed for the two weeks or less she used the service.   Its twelve months, I usually like to look at these things before we purchase, however. I just noticed that £45 quids gone out of my account this morning, that will be the joining charge. £18 monthly after that. Not too bad I suppose.   We live half way up a one in six hill for goodness sake, how much exercise does the woman need?  Just leave the car in the drive I say. Won't listen     
    • I figured they would be same company by googling them. Man, such dirty tactics these people use... Thank you DX! 
    • not a letter of claim safe to file   its actually from ZZPS too anyway claiming to be QDR
    • Well I think that one could reasonably infer that if, in the professional opinion of the doctor, a child is not fit for school and may present a risk of contagion, it can be reasonably inferred that the child is not fit to vacation for the same reasons.  There may be an additional cost to secure a second doctor's letter, so I would proceed with a copy of the letter to the school in the first instance.  It would be perverse, frankly, to suggest that a doctor's letter confirming a suspected prognosis of a contagious pox is somehow insufficient for the purpose of honouring the claim.  So I would just send that off - in the event that the insurers are difficult, then Snowdragon's daughter should be able to secure a further bespoke letter. 
    • Because travel insurers will always require a statement of professional opinion from the doctor about whether the child was fit to travel. The letter for school is unlikely to mention fitness to travel to go on holiday. I can see that OP won't be able to get the necessary doctor's letter herself for her grandchildren, but surely she can ask her daughter to get it? I recommend though that OP checks with insurer whether they need GP to sign a specific form. Often insurers have their own medical certificate they want signed. Better to check that before approaching GP for another letter.

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
